Summary
Combines leadership and organizational theory with early 20th-century history to model public leadership. What is leadership? What makes leadership good or bad? To answer these questions, the author draws on the multi-faceted career of George C. Marshall as an extended case study, focusing on the subject of leadership in public service. The dominating traits of Marshall's career were his character, virtues, and ethical practices in two world wars, his efforts to keep the peace and promote economic recovery following World War II, his style of management, and his approach to international diplomacy and nation-building. The author shows how Marshall's leadership was unique, given the ethical qualities displayed in his character and instilled in the organizations he led. All of these are examined in the context of his long career, and related to an abundant body of leadership theory, in order to successfully present Marshall as an effective public leader not only of the military and political realms, but of business and society as well
